Three Dimensions of Transparency

American venture capitalist Peter Thiel discusses three dimensions of transparency—spatial, temporal, and moral—and demonstrates how each dimension can help prevent human rights violations around the world.Generally, Thiel explains, technology has been used to advance freedom, but in the wrong hands, technology represents a grave danger to human rights. Thiel maintains that the advantages outweigh the dangers, however, and he urges the audience to ensure that human rights defenders have access to new technologies, so that the world can be more transparent, peaceful, and humane.
